2021 Farm Tour and Dinner Series
Our tour tells the story of the revival of the small farm homestead- the farmstead. As we journey around the farm we will highlight our rare and heritage chickens,-some breeds barely above extinction levels. We will view our heritage cattle, Scottish Highlands, chosen for their ability to contribute to a small farmstead and also chosen to preserve the breed. The Berkshire hogs on pasture are also chosen as a rare heritage breed.
We will visit the ancient grains' experimental test plots. The permaculture fruit orchard in progress will be explained. Our use of unheated high tunnels and low tunnels to grow vegetables year-round will be featured. The multi-purpose windbreak hedge will show how native edibles can be used in your landscape. And we will walk through the organically grown vegetable beds- all the while nibbling on treats from the farm. Each element is vital to a thriving sustainable farmstead.
After the tour, we invite you to be our private guests to an evening repast: a homestead dinner created from the abundance of the farm.

Elements of the farm meals are three to six months in the making. Vegetable seed for each meal is carefully sought out and selected for its suitability to the season and nourishing contribution to the meal.
The artisan farmers at Kinsman Farm honor the wisdom and traditions of our forefathers that enabled them to coax nutrition from the soil. Mixing these traditions with modern season extension techniques brings the best of old and new to our table as the seasons transition. The vast majority of our foods are hand planted, cultivated and harvested so as to provide the best flavors and the highest nutrition. Farming is as much an art as it is a science.
Our experiences with ancient grains are from seed to seed to grinding as flour, then baking bread for your table. We literally understand and walk the process from seed to loaf. And then our farm experiences become part of your experience. Our story becomes your story. And you become part of ours. Everybody eats and food brings us all together. Our menus are carefully crafted by chef and farmer to celebrate the seasons and the joy of eating wholesome food.
We look forward to meeting you!
